George Will rehashes the decades old canard that conservatives value freedom and that liberals want to use the government reflexively to eradicate various inequalities. This reflex is supposed to explain why liberals, for instance, tend to favor government provided health care over employer-based health savings accounts. Not because of any inherent efficiency and simplicity in the government-run model. But because liberals don't know how else to get anything done. Something like that anyhow.
Along with that, he writes, "Conservatism embraces President Kennedy's exhortation to "Ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what you can do for your country." I think that almost precisely the opposite is actually true.
